TALK about putting the “wood” in Woodlands. Just between Woodlands Avenue 4 and 9, there’s a small forest clearing where men pay women to have sex. It’s known as the “jungle brothel”, apparently in and out of business for the last 14 years and recently experiencing a, uhm, revival.
Lianhe Wanbao reporters in a recent stakeout saw more than 30 men enter the brothel, some alone, others in groups, over a half hour. Apparently, there’s a makeshift room with canvas sheets held up by wooden poles, and a mattress on the ground.
Hundreds of condoms and condom wrappers are strewn all about. See the story in TNP.
Residents worried about Woodlands jungle brothel
Call it a 'rubber plantation', if you will.

Woodlands is hiding a steamy little secret — a makeshift jungle brothel
Okay, we exaggerate. But you get the point: the grounds are littered with rubbers — hundreds of them. It's no surprise, given the red-light forest district has been operating sporadically near the junction of Woodlands Avenue 4 and 9 for the last 14 years.
The dirty discovery was first made by The New Paper in May 2004, and when Lianhe Wanbao paid it a visit the other night, business was booming. After the women (mostly foreign workers) arrived in cabs, 30 men were spotted strolling into the area — allegedly from the surrounding dormitories — in the space of 30 minutes.

SPF RAIDS FAIL TO STEM RAMPANT PROSTITUTION IN WOODLANDS FOREST
Following a series of raids into the forested "vice havens" of Woodlands, residents breathed a sigh of relief as the rampant underground prostitution taking place appeared to be slowing down.
The respite was short lived however, as prostitution gangs returned swiftly to the forested area between Woodlands Avenue 4 and 9 within a matter of days since the last police raid.
An unnamed resident revealed that most of the activity usually takes place after nightfall, with scores of men taking taxis to the area with a scantily dressed companion in tow. They would then enter into the area concealed by the forest and do the deed. When they finished, the duo would go their separate ways, with the customers leaving first
